[ applause ] sorry. just tell the story. the guy was a real prick. yeah, here we go. >> he was a real prick. >> jimmy: yeah. >> and everybody in the orchestra hated him. he treated everybody like "censor," you know. [ laughter ] so anyway, there was a big -- there was a big dress rehearsal for all the patrons. so everybody was in the audience. the orchestra was in place. the guy walks out. he bows to much applause from the audience. he gives the downbeat, and nothing happens. >> jimmy: hmm. >> and -- yeah. the audience -- that was great. you did it perfectly. [ light laughter ] so he huffed himself up. he tapped on the stand. he gave the down beat again. nothing happened. finally, the first chair violinist stood up and said, "that's just to show you no [ bleep ] music comes out of that baton of yours." [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i wish you said "censor" on that one.
that one -- that one -- >> but they'll censor it, right? it's will -- >> jimmy: yeah, absolutely. yeah. >> 'cause you can't really tell the -- >> jimmy: we'll be -- we'll be off the air. we'll be off the air, yeah, by tomorrow. this is our last show, everybody.

[ laughter ] the night is not going to work out." >> no. >> jimmy: no. it didn't. >> no. i know. no. >> jimmy: kicked her to the curb. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: all right. i love how down to earth you are, i got to say.

[ laughter ] and i was just getting so excited about all this. and so i went on a walk with my little dog, and he did his business. and i realized i didn't have anything to clean up after him. and i was horrified. because i thought, now the bodyguard's gonna talk to the trades -- you know, the -- what do you call it -- papers and he's gonna talk about how i don't clean up after my dog. >> jimmy: sure. >> and it's going to be all -- so finally, i looked around and i found a piece of paper. and i picked it up, and it had my autograph on it.
